For most heavy home theater and gaming users, Sony’s PlayStation 3 has been the best option as a Blu-ray player.
It’s got storage, streaming options and ... oh yeah, it even plays games.
But the system’s control options have always been criticized by those who plan to integrate it into their home theater system.

So, in an attempt to work around this limitation, a number of companies have developed converters that allow an IR signal from a universal remote to be converted to a Bluetooth signal and control the PS3.
The remote gurus at RemoteCentral.com have done extensive reviews of the options available for getting a universal remote to work with the PS3, and we’re sharing it with you.
